The National Garden, the largest green oasis at the centre of Athens, is suitable for cool walks among the avenues that are filled with people. It was created in 1839 and it was the garden of the palace of the first kings of Greece, which today houses the Parliament. Throughout its expanse they have planted approximately five hundred species of trees and plants from all over the world, which cannot be seen anywhere else in Greece. At the garden there are lakes with ducks, sculptures, an original sundial, scattered antiquities, a botanical museum, a playground, a children’s library and the picturesque café. It is open daily from sunrise to sunset.

The hill was a rock that goddess Athena carried in her hands and she dropped in Athens when she heard the bad news that a crow told her.
